David had duty on his birthday so we decided to celebrate a day early. The kids made him a cake. Some how Lyric and I got the measurement of the oil confused. It was suppose to be 1/3 c. but we measured out 1 1/3 c. While Kian was pouring the oil into the bowl I did notice before we poured the whole thing in. I think we ended up putting about 1 c in. We had no idea how it would come out. It ended up really yummy. I guess if you want a very moist cake put in extra oil.

I let each of the kids pick out what they wanted to give David for his birthday. Allyn picked him out a card. It is really cute how she wrote his name on the front. It says Dadday
Kian picked him out a toothbrush. How perfect he now has one for home and one for the boat.
Lyric picked out a bag of Twix. Good think he has a toothbrush after eating all of that candy.
Judah and I picked him out a coke. We hardly ever have soda in the house, but when we do David drinks it like it is the last thing on earth.
We took the kids to the San Diego Zoo yesterday. It really is a great zoo. I can't believe how close we get to the animals. I am not a big fan of pictures of animals so David was camera man all day. He took lots and lots of pictures. Here are a few of them.
You can see in this first picture how close we were to the tortoises. These were one of my favorite things to look at. I really had no idea how big they were just by watching them on TV.
We had to take a picture of Allyn in front of the flamingos. Back when I was pregnant with Lyric and Allyn was 2 we drove down to CA from WA. We took her to Sea World and for the longest time she would imitate a flamingo. It is one of those things that David and I will never forget about her being little.
I LOVED watching Judah's face while he looked at the animals. He was amazed! When we were looking at the cheetah he pointed and said, "MoMo".
David was really into the Gorilla statues.
Did I say David took most of the pictures? Both the zebra and elephants were male! Lyric thought it was funny.
I made sure David got a picture of this sign. I thought it was interesting!
Last Thursday was David's first day of work. He had to be there at 7 and at noon he called me and said he was on his way home and didn't have to be back to work until Tuesday. So now today is David's first full day of work. He is on the CGC Chase.
The kids ran out to meet him when he got home his first day.
